Non-maintained settings: Joint CIW and Estyn inspections
When we resumed joint inspections with Estyn in January 2021, we suspended the use of judgements on a temporary basis following the pandemic.
From 27 February 2023 we will reintroduce the publication of judgements for our joint inspections.
We will continue to work jointly if settings are being placed in the joint ‘focused improvement’ follow-up category. We will continue to apply our securing improvement and enforcement policy as necessary, and Estyn will continue to apply their follow-up procedures as required.
